The old world meets con­tem­po­rary charm in a din­ing room rem­i­nis­cent of a colo­nial train car. Dishes are done ex­tremely well by chef de cui­sine Heidi Flana­gan and her team. In­dul­gent steaks take cen­tre stage—in par­tic­u­lar the unc­tu­ous snow-aged, full-blood wagyu (A4) and the earthy dry-aged, grass­fed Ir­ish striploin and rib-eye. Wher­ever pos­si­ble, the restau­rant sources sus­tain­able pro­duce from re­spon­si­ble pur­vey­ors. The de­li­cious miso and but­ter-glazed black cod served with sautéed greens, for in­stance, fea­tures wild black cod that’s linecaught off the coast of Canada, while the grass-fed Aus­tralian lamb rack served with radic­chio, lab­neh and a honey vi­nai­grette is raised hor­mone-, cru­elty- and an­tibi­oticfree. The re­sult­ing dishes are un­fussy, deftly pre­pared and de­pend­ably solid. Backed by a team of im­pec­ca­bly trained ser­vice staff, Ori­gin Grill makes for a re­li­able venue when one needs a restau­rant that won’t let you down on any count.
